Special functions in Common Lisp
Table of Contents
About the Project
Wikipedia describes special functions as:
particular mathematical functions that have more or less established names and notations due to their importance in mathematical analysis, functional analysis, geometry, physics, or other applications. The term is defined by consensus, and thus lacks a general formal definition ...
This library implements those special functions required to support statistical distributions.
